The Tom Dolan Invitational kicked off with a trio of NAG records falling.
12-year-old Destin Lasco took down the 11-12 National Age Group record in the 100 back, going 54.03 to break Ryan Murphy’s old record.
Lasco won a whole bunch of events on the night: the 500 free (4:59.13), the 200 back (2:00.56) and the 100 free (50.65).
Reece Whitley broke a 13-14 NAG record in the 100 breast, going 55.62 to break Michael Andrew’s old mark. Unfortunately for Whitley, Andrew rebroke the record later in the night at Junior Nationals finals, but Whitley is still just 13 and has plenty more time to get the record back.
The 13-14 relay from NOVA of Virginia broke a NAG record in the night’s closing event, the 800 free relay. The relay of David Dixon, Campbell Nystrom, Matthew Whelan, and Jacob Johnson went a 7:03.50, led by Johnson’s 1:43 anchor split.
Dixon also won the 400 IM for the 13-14 age group, going 4:00.38, and the 100 fly in 50.19.
NCAP’s big names didn’t compete today: most notably Katie Ledecky, Janet Hu and Andrew Seliskar.
